|Mother||Eva Sophia M Gervais|
Gervais was born in Battle Hospital in Reading, Berkshire, on June 25, 1961.
With a sister, Marsha, and brothers Larry and Robert, he grew up in the Whitley neighborhood of Reading. Gervais began to doubt the existence of God at the age of eight, after being prompted by Robert.
He met Jane Fallon, with whom he has been in a relationship since 1982 when he was there.
Background information about family
Lawrence Raymond “Jerry” Gervais (1919–2002), Ricky’s father, was a Franco-Ontarian of French Canadian and Iroquois origin from Pain Court, Ontario, who immigrated to the United Kingdom while on overseas duty during WWII.
Before meeting Gervais’ English mother, Eva Sophia, he worked as a laborer and hod-carrier. They met during a blackout and lived in Whitley, Reading, where they had four children over the course of sixteen years.
Eva died of lung cancer at the age of 74. Gervais is the youngest of three children, with three elder siblings: educator Larry (1945–2019), pedagogue Marsha (1948–), and painter-decorator Bob (1950–).
Gervais has expressed his admiration and respect for Bob, in particular, praising him for his caustic and provocative wit.
Eva Gervais, their mother, impacted both of their comic sensibilities.
Ricky has given an illustration of this by recalling in several interviews how, when he was 11 years old and inquired why his brothers were so much older than him, his mother informed him flatly that he was a mistake.

Private & early life
Gervais owns properties in London’s Hampstead and Buckinghamshire’s Marlow.
He also has an apartment in New York City’s Barbizon 63 building.
He’s been with producer and author Jane Fallon since 1982, and they say they didn’t marry because “there’s no point in us having an actual ceremony before the eyes of God because there is no God,” and they didn’t have children because they “didn’t fancy dedicating 16 years of lives… and there are too many children, of course.”
He is a vegan, an atheist, and a humanist who claims to have given up religion when he was eight years old.
He defended his atheism in an op-ed for The Wall Street Journal in December 2010. He is an honorary associate of the National Secular Society of the United Kingdom and a patron of Humanists UK, a British nonprofit that promotes the humanist viewpoint and works for a secular state and human rights.
On September 3, 2019, he was honored with the 2019 Richard Dawkins Award, which honors those who promote “secularism and rationality, defending scientific facts wherever they may lead.”
Gervais won the award at the Troxy Theatre in London, which was hosted by the Centre for Inquiry. Gervais is a “witty hero of atheism and reason,” according to Dawkins.
Gervais is a UFC and Reading F.C. enthusiast. He enjoys music and has declared that David Bowie is his hero, with “Letter to Hermione” being his favorite tune.
He has also mentioned that witnessing Iggy Pop perform live was his first exposure to live music. Following Reed’s death in 2013, he remarked that Lou Reed was “one of the finest artists of our time.”
Gervais is one of 100 people who have contributed to the book Dear NHS: 100 Stories to Say Thank You, which benefits NHS Charities Together and The Lullaby Trust.
